I was a bit concerned by some of the reviews on trip advisor, but I needn't have worried. Sure enough the place looks a bit tatty but it is an old building. I think we were luckier than the others in my group in that we had a family room which was spacious and comfortable with a view of the... More

very dated hotel, room was small but we were only staying one night, very hot and stuffy, breakfast was ample, although the black pudding was soooooo hard, soft drinks from the bar were flat, coke etc, lovely view of the river,plenty of car parking space, wdnt stay in this hotel again purely down to its lack of lift

Thankfully I didn't pay for the room I had here for six nights. What can I say. Basic and very simple. My room was so small I could stretch my arms and touch both walls at the same time. Bathroom was functional but be prepared to wait over thee minutes for the hot water to reach you as certain parts... More

Stayed here for one night in August on a business stop-over. Clean room and bathroom. Not a modern hotel and a little dated. Good views of the river, and nice beer garden. Slightly noisy at night with the bar underneath. Breakfast was good and meal the night before was large!

The people were friendly and the room rate was very reasonable £55, so no complaints there. The hotel itself and my room was clean, though it had that tired and slightly dog-eared feel of an older property that could really do with some money spending on it. The staff were welcoming, helpful and very friendly. The grub in the bar... More
